The study tour took place on 3-5 March 2020 in the Basque region, Spain. It facilitated sharing of policy experience and good practices in a range of areas applicable to MSME development. These include advanced manufacturing, eco-industries, technical innovations, and skill development through technical and vocational education training (TVET) programmes. These are topics important for the transition of developing countries into the era of industry 4.0 and for expanding MSME contributions to the SDGs.
